4:32 pm
people killed. it left so many more homeless. today, haiti is still in crisis mode with some 350,000 people living in camps. and all that money that was promised is somehow not getting there. we're told not even half of the 5 billion dollars pledged by donors have been delivered. and still, progress is being made. most of the rubble from the collapsed building is gone and they built more than 80 schools. among those dedicated to seeing haiti rise again, fox news channel's own greta van susteren, she traveled to haiti in the aftermath of the quake and returned many times and greta put on a special report on haiti and airs tonight. and here is a clip. >> there is a special home. >> take a look behind me, this is, these kids have absolutely nothing two years ago.

4:34 pm
chance. >> harris: while you and i talk a bit. they put up some scenes from haiti from december 2010 on until now. you have seen so much there. it's touched you personally. tell us a little about your journey and really, in the past couple of years, what you've seen? >> well, when i first got there literally hitchhiked on a plane, a military plane with secretary of state hillary clinton went down and our colleagues were sleeping on the tarmac at the airport when i arrived and unbelievable the devastation and went around in helicopters later and looked at buildings and just pancaked on top of each other and more than a million people were displaced and went to the displaced person camps, this is' no law and order, there's raped and crime, women get pregnant and abandon the babies and incidentally some of the babies are in the greta home and academy and now have a chance. and this is pure hell on earth, but the, you know, and i know there's a lot of money wasted, but when you give to certain organizations and incredible volunteers and heart and soul an every
4:35 pm
section of their life, you can see what can be done. so, you know, it's easy to be very discouraged, but if you just grab on to the glimmers of hope, it's inspiring. >> harris: you and i have known each other for a number of years and i've seen you cover so many stories and i don't want to make you blush, but you have an enormously large heart. but with all the stories you've seen, this one in particular moved you so much. many countries promising to help, but you're saying, really it's come down to just a few. >> well, yeah, i mean, this is right next door to us, this is haiti and implications for the united states, but when you go down and see the kids that come into the greta home and academy, they never had a set of clothes until they showed up at our orphanage, and anybody down there would have a big heart or sent in a dollar anyplace has a big heart and thrills me, i'm lucky, harris, i'm lucky where i have a job and put the spotlight on this stuff i know
4:36 pm
people like reverend franklin graham and i'm lucky to be a part of their project. anytime anybody helps, just one little thing, i can tell you it goes far, you know, it's very exciting and very thrilling and i'm just really lucky i can be able to help. >> harris: you know, i'm curious to know the length of the process now. because, it's been more than two years already. what are we looking at in terms of real dedication and seeing things really turn around in that country? >> well, it's-- look, there's so much corruption in the government it's easy i can tell you the grim story and say this is hopeless and this is an uphill battle. and if you see at ten o'clock tonight you'll see a lot of our guests will say, what an uphill challenge this is, battle it is, and that there's so much corruption and why this is one project to sink my teeth in, greta home and academy and you can't come in another country and change them. they have to change from within. it's a slow progress and it may be whimsical to think
4:37 pm
that, but we want to help give them a chance so they can grow up and take responsibility and lead their country. if you go through haiti, it took us three hours to drive 15 miles, and you say, my god, could it be true, the way they're living, all on top of each other and you see such destruction and see chaos, so, it seems almost impossible, but you have to sort of stop, take a deep breath and well, at least i want to try to help and at least we ought to try and can't just turn our backs. >> harris: before i let you go, people are watching this video and listening to you talk, yo talk, they're seeing former president's clinton and bush, and not to bring politics into it, but you can't miss it when you see presidents from the opposite side of the political rile working together. >> in washington we fight and politically, when you get out of washington and have a real problem, and the people join together, it doesn't matter
4:38 pm
who you are, what party you are, where you're from. this country has a rich history of helping people and when it gets really bad, you know, i want the americans help me see what they can do and the a perfect example, it doesn't matter who you are, what your background is, everyone wants to help. >> you know, and people watch this special tonight, greta and tell them more about it when they can tune in. americans will look at this and wonder, okay, what is it that we as a country can do? is there a list? >> there's so much, so many places in the world, and a lot of things people can do in their community to help, help in your own community. and this is obviously one of my projects, and you know, and so i do it-- the ones who did the heavy lifting is reverend franklin graham and samaritan's purse and for the greta home and academy. go to samaritans and donate if you want to this project and streamline for this project and believe me, i mean, you know, when you see
4:39 pm
the videos and when you see tonight's special you'll see why i'm so enthusiastic about it, but you know, the thing is, there's no shortage of places for people to give money even in this country and if people get addicted to helping, helping is fun. it's contagious, whether it's in your own community or haiti or someplace else. i just encourage people, get out and do something, because it's a blast to help other people. >> harris: greta van susteren, thank you. i've asked them to pop up samaritans and i'll tweet it, as a live report. thank you. >> nice talking to you, see you, harris. >> harris: don't miss the on the record special, rebuilding haiti with greta van susteren, airs at 10 p.m. on fox news channel. now, renewed focus on cyber warfare and you might know that some of the bank's computers took a hit a few days ago, we're told the attack came from iran. what about other companies, not just banks. new tonight, the push on

4:41 pm

4:51 pm
the super bowl and this weekend's game did not disappoint. and at work today in atlanta where the falcons played their he elimination round against the seattle seahawks, you cover the game play by play. i thought that atlanta was running the table and then something woke the seahawks up. >> yeah, you know, still in atlanta where the celebrating is going on for falcons fans harris, a 20-0 deficit. en russell wilson, down 14-0 and led them back to victory and took the lead, the seahawks did with 31 seconds left with the atlanta falcons into the next round, the championship game where they will host and a big win for matt ryan, his first career playoff victory and that's important, because he was drafted in the first round to kind of resurrect the falcon franchise after michael vick had the disastrous mess that took them downward. and we're looking at the
4:52 pm
winning field goal. and the nfc championship is set. and the 9ers handled green bay last night. what kind of matchup are we talking about here? >> a good regional matchup. southeast and then the falcons and atlanta against the west coast and 49ers. jim harbaugh has a second year quarterback, colin kaepernick who ran the ball well and as a starter, and some people thought it was a foolish gamble, but worked so far, he obviously can throw the ball as well and then, you have the falcons who will be at home and i have to say it was the noiseiest i heard the georgia dome in years and they encouraged fans to make noise and maybe an advantage for the falcons when they play host to the 49ers, who were very physical defensive team and they were in last year's championship game before falling to the giants and giants went on to win the super bowl. >> quickly, before we move on. you talk about kaepernick for the 49ers, he kind of took, and i watched a lot of the green bay game and took aaron rogers by surprise, but almost
4:53 pm
schooled him with his ability to run all over the field. and how does he match up with matt ryan? >> well, it's a very different quarterback. because matt ryan is a pocket quarterback and has the receivers and julio jones and ronnie white at tight end tony gonzalez to do it. and the 49ers are more of a running team and they can throw the ball, but in the era of running quarterbacks and we saw atlanta defense russell wilson rather well and kaepernick tore up the packers running the ball and didn't make the defensive adjustment and falcons have to make at that adjustment and prepare for kaepernick running probably first before him throwing otherwise won't be able to pull off the win. >> they were man on man coverage and almost got to cover him like running back with two guys on him. i have the big board, everybody can't see it because i'm sneaking and watching the game, chris. houston against new england, 41-28 a minute '09 left in the

quarter and if they can tie it up with a huge points spread and can't imagine that they won't. >> i think we can count and check mark the patriots as host for the afc championship game against baltimore, the team that they hosted last year and that game went down to the wire if not for a missed pass and field goal late in the game, baltimore could have gone on to the super bowl. the ravens have that dramatic upset win against peyton manning and the broncos and matches up well as good as they are and experienced and tom brady, play keep away from brady and joe flacco, a break through year, who has been in the playoffs like matt ryan and advancing further. >> harris: before i let you go, last question, it really is maybe brother against brother, at least it has been through the playoffs to the parents, but they could actually meet each other poe he tensionally and talking john harbaugh and jim harbaugh? >> and now what? harris, we had that possibility last year, and it didn't pan out, but, yes, john
